Extended Provision for children (Nursery to Year 6)

From September 2018, the JK Club will be extending their wrap around provision hours to include a 1pm collection for nursery children. Nursery children may, therefore attend the JK Club provision from 7:30-9am and 1-6:15pm.

If you would like further information on the JK Club provision , please visit their website: 


On 30th June, Mrs Pitt, Mr Ryan, Mrs Patel, Mr Williams, Miss Randall, Mrs Southworth, Mrs Dewhurst and Mr Bailey will complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge with the aim of raising additional funds for school.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent.  The challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The money raised will be used to fund the following projects:

  • Outdoor running track
  • ICT coding scheme
  • Sensory room for children with special educational needs
  • Equipment for PE and ICT

A very big thank you for all of the donations and messages we have received so far – this has really helped to keep our motivation up! We have 52 days left to go until we complete the challenge and have so far raised £1,315 - our target is £5,000!
